Problem with the voice after joining a band (Singing Teachers)
I’ve got a question for all of the vocal tutors regarding my voice…I’ve recently joined a band after 4 years of performing as a soloist to backing tracks, and I have found in the rehearsals that even after a good 20 minute or so warmup, my voice is giving out and I am really struggling to hit certain high notes in my chest voice. I’m aware I’m probably being a bit shouty because of how loud it is and next time I’m going to try and reign it in a bit!
A song I am particularly concerned about is Decode by Paramore, there are lots of high notes that you have to keep in chest voice and I’m really struggling! 4 years ago I was perfectly fine singing this song with a band! Has anyone experienced a reduction in their vocal range as they get older, I’m in the later half of my 20’s (I know this is a natural thing and I’m hoping this isn’t the case for me)
I also think that my voice isn’t used to singing with a live band, seeing as all I have done for 4 years is sing either to backing tracks or a piano?
Obviously I know that this isn’t regarding anything to do with teaching but any information would help me in the future should any students of mine come across a similar sort of problem!
